Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun volume 2

Today has already been much more eventful than yesterday. We got our Chromebook, so now we just need to set it up, and Operation: Disneyland Office is a go! And of course, package delivery is always accompanied by cats marking their territory! The effect is greatly enhanced by the recent rain, so when we opened the door to take our package inside! ...well, we've just been surrounded by the most...let's say natural...aroma. We also got a pound of wool, because we still have lofty dreams of making things from scratch, including yarn. Hopefully that will get off the ground sometime.

But for now! it's time to post a review, for it is Review Rednesday! And as promised, we have bumped Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun 2 up in line, and now here it is! Spoilers ahead!

Wow, that review was a little bit all over the place. I think it still makes sense overall if you haven't read the volume, but there are some parts that are like, "Wait, what?" Like the stuff about the Confession Tree. You're just going to have to read the book to find out about it.

This week's releases include...nothing!!! Seriously, what are we even doing all this work for? And the Kodansha site is listing Sailor Moon as not coming out until April!

But maybe now we can take this chance to recommend Sentai Filmworks's streaming service, HiDive, which you can access for free. And why would you want to do that? To watch Mitsuboshi Colors!! which is a hilarious anime that we translate. It's about three little brats who like to pretend they're saving their city. The impressive thing about it is that I still enjoy it even though two of the three main characters are horrible, awful people. They're just so darn funny about it.

And tune in next week! for our review of Fire Force 7! This volume features a new character who's one of our favorites, so if you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, I heartily recommended it!

Today I'm thankful for getting our new Chromebook, having plans to experiment with a change in work environment, getting to translate another great episode of Mitsuboshi Colors, getting that volume of Hanako-kun reviewed, and still having chocolate cake to look forward to.
